monday, i spent all morning out at centennial hills hospital waiting for miss posie to make her way into the world. i got to stay in the room when it was finally time for jodie to push. it was a very special moment to witness. and i am so thankful that she came when she did and that the knot in her umbilical cord didn't cause her any harm. after getting my chance to hold her, i had to leave to get back home to throw dinner in the crock pot and leave to get the mixter.
tuesday, i met jen over at michaels. we had a $100 gift card to spend on something to celebrate random acts of kindness week. we got totes and filled them full of fun crafts for beckam, quincy and piper. just a little something special for them. we snuck in a quick lunch at sweet tomatoes before heading home, where i found a very exciting box sitting on my doorstep. my blurb books came. three of them. my 2012 blog, 2008 trip to disneyland and our 2009 trip to disneyland/santa barbara. at school, madi got to go to the straight A luncheon. it was catered by mama depalma's. they got to listen to music, play games and enjoy brownies, cake and ice-cream for dessert. (she also got to miss 4th and 5th period)
friday, madi stayed home because she wasn't feeling well. darric stayed home too. he had a doctor's appointment at 9:00. i met jen out at world market at 10:00 to do some shopping with another gift card. this one was for $150. we just had to buy stuff from their easter collection to decorate our house with. we found stuff for jen's table and her front door (a cute door mat) and i got a little something for my kitchen counter. we snuck in another lunch. this time at red robin.
saturday morning, darric and max went to play basketball at the park. saturday night, the bertrands came over to hang out. kenzie made tortilla salads that turned out pretty good. she baked the flour tortillas on the back side of a muffin tin. jan made her yummy guacamole. the kids played, adults chatted and watched some of the dunk contest.
sunday, it was my mission to track down some girl scout cookies. we were pretty sure they would be selling them outside of smith's and sure enough, they were. darric got 2 boxes of thin mints and 2 boxes of caramel delites (or as i like to call them, samoas). they didn't last long. that afternoon, kenzie got a great idea to paint her room. darric was lead to believe i said she could and i was lead to believe he said she could. so darric told her she had to tape off her room. she found 2 cans of paint in the garage and then begged for someone to go to home depot and get her a paint brush. after darric had her pull weeds on both sides of the house, he went and got her a paint brush and she got to painting. and that's when darric realized the paint she was using was the paint for our baseboards. it figures. she got her entire room done before going to bed.
